Going backwards by restarting

Amid controversy and protests, the government of Japan has restarted the first nuclear power plant since the disaster nearly four and a half years ago (Japan Times news story HERE). 

The restart of the reactor at Kyushu Electric Power Co.’s Sendai plant was the lead story on the BBC Word Service, and as someone who has been visiting Fukushima since shortly after the nuclear meltdown in 2011, I was honoured to be asked to appear on the program (via Skype) where I was interviewed live on air (BBC podcast HERE).
